Insomnia is a sleep disorder that not only leads to problems falling asleep but is also associated with various cognitive impairments. Lack of rest can already be very disabling and cause daily difficulties, so cognitive problems associated with insomnia in adults make the situation worse. Fortunately, CogniFit training for adults with insomnia has been scientifically proven to help improve both cognitive state, and reduce insomnia symptoms when combined with appropriate therapy.

CogniFit's cognitive training program for adults with insomnia is accessible online from computers, tablets, and smartphones with an internet connection. This neuropsychological resource will allow us to strengthen and reinforce the brain capacities related to insomnia that are more deteriorated. This is done through entertaining cognitive stimulation activities. It is recommended to train at least 20 minutes a day, three days a week.

CogniFit training for insomnia in adults has clear objectives: to help regular therapy reduce the symptoms of insomnia (reduce the time needed to fall asleep, reduce the number of wake-ups, as well as increase the duration and quality of sleep), reduce the cognitive disturbances associated with insomnia in adults (fatigue, difficulty concentrating, frequent forgetfulness, difficulty processing information) and strengthen other cognitive abilities. In conclusion, this aims to help adults with insomnia improve their daily activities, encouraging personal, academic and work relationships.

CogniFit training programs have been scientifically validated. CogniFit training for adults with insomnia consists of a large variety of stimulation activities and cognitive assessment tasks dedicated to strengthening the principal cognitive abilities most related to this sleep disorder. One of the distinctive features of CogniFit insomnia training is its ability to automatically modify its intervention plan to meet the specific needs of each user, making it possible to personalize the training to enhance its results.

Note: CogniFit does not treat insomnia, but may help improve cognitive skills affected by this disorder.

Healthcare Professionals

To help the cognitive skills of my adult patients with insomnia

Since CogniFit has scientifically demonstrated that combining its cognitive stimulation activities with the usual treatment for insomnia helps improve the symptoms and cognitive abilities, health professionals may be very interested in applying CogniFit to their patients. In order to ease patient management, CogniFit has created the Healthcare Professional Platform. With this platform, health professionals will also be able to track the evolution of patients whether they are using CogniFit in therapy or from home (cognitive remote stimulation).

Researchers and scientists

Study the effects of cognitive training in adults with insomnia

If we want to scientifically study the effect of cognitive stimulation in adults with insomnia, CogniFit's platform for researchers gives us the possibility to conveniently manage and compare the data of the participants in our study. In addition, the CogniFit Platform for Researchers has a control group that offers different tasks and always at the lowest level of difficulty in comparison to the other group.

Trained cognitive skills

Trained cognitive skills

It is difficult to differentiate which alterations may be the cause or consequence of lack of sleep. However, there are a number of cognitive abilities that are consistently impaired in people who have insomnia and other sleep problems. CogniFit insomnia training is designed to work intensively on these cognitive abilities, and has been scientifically proven to help reduce the symptoms associated with insomnia:

Cognitive Domains Trained
Cognitive Skills

Memory

The ability to retain or use new information and recover memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past to use them in the future. Learning is a key process in memory because it makes it possible to incorporate new information or modify existing information in the previous mental schemas. After this coding and storage, the information, the memory, or the learning should be prepared to be recovered in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the memory process and works actively during sleep to consolidate the information acquired during the day.

Naming

Ability to refer to an object, person, place, concept or entity by name. Ability to find in our "lexical storage" the specific word we are looking for and reproduce it. People with insomnia often have greater difficulty than people without this sleep disorder in accessing the name of familiar words.

Perception

Ability to interpret the stimuli of the environment. Perception is responsible for identifying and making sense of the information received from our sensory organs based on our prior knowledge of the world. Perception is a process that can be given by different senses (like sight, hearing, touch, etc.), and that our brain is responsible for integrating, giving it a sense of whole. The brain areas associated to perception are responsible for uniting the information perceived by the different sensory organs so that we can interact effectively with external stimuli, regardless of the stimulated sensory organ. In order for the perceptual process to be carried out properly, a process of assimilation and understanding of the information received will be necessary.

Coordination

Ability to efficiently perform precise and ordered movements. Coordination allows us to perform our movements in a quickly and efficiently. The cerebellum is the brain structure responsible for making coordinated movements: from walking, holding a glass, or dancing ballet. It helps to maintain a coherence between our movements and the feedback we get from our senses.

Response Time

Response Time

Ability to detect, process and respond to a stimulus. This ability is related to having good reflexes since it refers to the time from when we perceive something until we give a response accordingly. Some studies indicate that people with insomnia require more time to react to react to stimuli that are unexpected or which require a quick reaction time.

Attention

Ability to filter distractions and focus on relevant information. Attention accompanies every cognitive process and is in charge of assigning cognitive resources depending on the relevance of both internal and external stimuli. Good attention skills are necessary for other high-level processes, like memory or planning. Attention is an essential process that requires the use of different parts of the brain, from the brainstem or the parietal cortex to the prefrontal cortex. However, it seems that the right hemisphere has a predominant role in controlling attention. This cognitive area makes it possible to stay alert and pay attention to the stimuli when other irrelevant distractors are present, concentration for long periods of time, alternating attention between different activities, or dividing attention when two events are happening at the same time.

Divided Attention

Divided Attention

The ability of our brain to attend to different stimuli or tasks at the same time, and thus respond to the multiple demands of the environment. Divided attention is a type of simultaneous attention that allows us to process different sources of information and successfully execute more than one task at a time. One of the biggest cognitive complaints of people who suffer from insomnia is attention problems, especially in more demanding processes, such as performing two activities at the same time.

What will I get from CogniFit brain training for adults with insomnia?

What will I get from CogniFit brain training for adults with insomnia?

CogniFit has been scientifically proven to help improve the cognitive status and sleep quality of adults with insomnia by enhancing the quality of life. Therefore, CogniFit insomnia training pursues the following goals:

  • To improve the cognitive state of adults with insomnia. People with insomnia may notice difficulties in many activities due to impaired cognitive abilities. Cognitive stimulation aims to reduce these everyday difficulties.
  • Reduce symptoms related to insomnia. It has been scientifically proven that CogniFit training, along with regular insomnia therapy, can help adults improve sleep quality, reduce the time needed to fall asleep, reduce waking up during the night, and increase sleep duration.
  • Encourage academic and work performance. Both sleep problems and cognitive difficulties associated with insomnia can impair our efficiency at work or our attention during class. Proper treatment can reduce these difficulties associated with insomnia.
  • Promote social and personal life. Daily activities (such as sleeping, preparing food, meeting with friends) can be severely affected by insomnia. By reducing the symptoms of insomnia and strengthening our cognitive skills, it is possible to improve our quality of life.

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

The neuropsychological activities offered by CogniFit training for adults with insomnia represent a progressive challenge to our brains and cognitive abilities. Our brain will gradually modify its brain connections to adapt and respond effectively to the demands of the training.

This ability of our brain to modify its structure in order to adapt to the stimulation received is called "brain plasticity". This mechanism allows our brain to mold within the possibilities according to our experience. Thus, if CogniFit activities constantly demand an adequate effort of cognitive skills (such as memory or attention), our brain will try to modify slightly so that these activities are reinforced. As a consequence, the areas of the brain involved will become more efficient.

When these activities are tailored to our needs, such as CogniFit training, cognitive abilities can be improved and, in addition, help reduce insomnia symptoms in adults. This can translate into a higher quality of life.

This is also an advantage for professionals who want their patients to perform insomnia training from home, permitting cognitive remote stimulation.

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

People with insomnia can easily recognize the difficulties in attention, memory and executive functions. When an adequate intervention on these cognitive impairments is not carried out, further difficulties will arise in attending to, incorporating, managing, maintaining and recovering new information, worsening our academic, work and personal performance.

A scientifically validated, personalized cognitive training can improve our cognitive performance on a daily basis, enhancing the state of some essential skills. CogniFit insomnia training has been scientifically proven to improve certain cognitive abilities and can also help reduce insomnia-related symptoms by improving sleep time, sleep efficiency, and total sleep time. This multi-dimensional and systematic training favors the activation of altered neural patterns in insomnia.

CogniFit insomnia training lasts approximately 15-20 minutes, although it may vary slightly depending on the person. A minimum of one session a day, three days a week, is recommended. However, the number of daily or weekly sessions may be increased or decreased depending on the condition and needs of the user. In any case, it is always more advisable to do moderate and constant training rather than intense but inconsistent training.

Each training session for adults with insomnia consists of three activities: the first two are cognitive stimulation, and the third is an assessment. In this way, the CogniFit program trains our cognitive state while measuring our progress, allowing us to personalize the intervention plan to optimize training and results.

CogniFit has a number of features that make your cognitive assessments and training program unique. One of these distinctive qualities of the cognitive training for insomnia is that it allows the cognitive abilities altered in this sleep disorder to be stimulated in a personalized way through its validated, standardized and multi-dimensional activities.

CogniFit's patented ITS™ (Individualized Training System) technology automatically personalizes the difficulty and type of exercises that will be presented to the user during adult insomnia training. This patented technology has been designed by an international team of scientists, neurologists, and psychologists, who research the latest discoveries and advances in the brain.

Every person is different, and so are their cognitive needs. This is why it is so important that the training is tailored to each user. What is useful for one person does not have to be useful for another, even if both suffer from insomnia. That's why CogniFit implements ITS technology, which allows training to be adapted to the user.

In addition, CogniFit keeps track of the user's status in each training session. That's why CogniFit keeps track of the user's cognitive health in each training session, so it can automatically adjust to make the training more effective.

In any case, it should be noted that all cognitive stimulation games are not the same. That a game is scientifically validated and supported, like CogniFit's activities, gives us the guarantee that it is a serious and reliable tool. Using CogniFit, with its scientifically validated personalized trainings, helps us to stimulate our cognitive abilities and improve our insomnia symptoms in a rigorous and systematic way.
